    SmartVite Thrive Senior Pellets is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great results! I started my 18 year old mare Raina on this and she perked up, much more energy and sass ! Her coat looks awesome and her hooves are looking really good too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Balanced vitamin supplement! I bought this a few weeks ago because my horse was low on energy after being in a dry lot with hay rations for 45 days to lose weight. Her blood work showed she had metabolic syndrome ( diabetes for humans). She lost about 150 pounds. This supplement has given her energy again at age 26 and she loves the taste! She wants to get some exercise now and move! She is back to flirting with the geldings!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for a 28 year old TWH Mare! My old friend seems to be thriving on this supplement! She is much more affectionate (she has tended to be a bit "cranky" these last few years) and actually seems happy....Time will tell, but so far this past month, I am very pleased with this supplement and we both thank SmartPak for this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My girl looks awesome! I started my 17 year old Arabian mare on this two months ago. She has been an easy keeper but she was starting to look a little rough around the edges. After being on this, she has shed out well and has perked up! She had a colt last year and to be honest, I didn't wean him when I should have and that took a lot out of her. But she has bounced back after starting this supplement! I'll be keeping her on it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked great and brought life back to my old boy Got this for my Belgian draft gelding, 18 years old. He didn't have anything really wrong with him, just seemed tired. This made him have more energy and he seemed healthier. I had to switch however because I really wanted something with more coverage and that had biotin in it. If this did he would be kept on this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all purpose vitamin I started my little senior pony on this vitamin a month ago. He wasn't having an particular issues other than getting older(he is 15 now). Hoping this will keep him eating and looking healthy into his senior years. Affordable preventative maintenance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far, so good! I started both of my twenty-something horses on this to support their overall health as well as provide minerals to boost their immune system after a summer of persistent white line issues. Both of my horses eat it right up, and after a couple of months their feet are looking a bit better. I want to say that my thoroughbred mare seems a little more calm and contented, too, but I can't be sure that it is because of this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far So Good Started my mare on this about 6 weeks ago because she wasn't getting grain anymore. I haven't noticed any real difference but I'm happy to maintain her good health. I'm very interested to see how she goes through the winter on it.Great quality and palatability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartvite Senior I tried this product for a month and would keep my mare on it except I decided to go a different direction with her feed for the time being. It is a very good product and Penny had no problems with it. I may consider it for the near future should I decide to switch back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been using Barn Bag supplement for many years now with satisfying results. Now that I have down sized from running a boarding stable to just my own two senior horses (18 and 32 years of age) I thought I'd try the Thrive Sr. My younger horse frequently spits some of it out onto the floor, so not sure that he likes it much. My old girl seems to think it's okay. Might go back to Barn Bag, but not sure yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SmartVite Thrive Senior We put my mom's 15 yr old Quarter Horse on the SmartVite Thrive Senior pellets several months ago and have seen a marked difference in his demeanor. He had been acting like he didn't feel good with no medical reasons for it. We decided to try the vitamins and it's worked! He has his old "pep in his step" back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Supplement We bought this supplement a month ago for our 26 year old gelding, who is at the "pasture pet" stage of life. He is happily eating it and feeling good, but I can't tell if the supplement has made a difference. We are trying to do what we can to keep him happy. He has Cushings (for which he takes medication) and glaucoma in one eye (also medicated) and we have been able to maintain his weight quite well. It is hard to rate the effectiveness of the product without a longer time period. We plan to keep using it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great I purchased this product for my 22+ year old horse a couple months ago. She is a very picky eater and we had no issues with her wanting to eat this. Since being on SmartVite she has more energy. Seeing her loping and playing in the pasture is all the evidence I need that she is feeling good!
    Date published: 2015-01-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right This is just what my "old ladies" need. They are 24 and 26, live outside 24/7 coming in to get a feed and occasionally I leave the barn open so they can go in their stalls if the weather is really awful. They look good, have energy for our occasional trail ride and kick up their heels every so often.
    Date published: 2015-01-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleased with results I am very pleased with the physical results I am seeing after having my two seniors on this product for about 6 weeks. I had tried two other multivitamin products but since being on SmartVite Thrive Senior there are notable differences. One senior was having trouble maintaining a normal vit. E & Se value and both seniors were suffering with cracked &/or split hooves. After a month on this supplement without a specific vit. E/Se supplement, my one guy's values are normal; low normal, but normal. After 6 weeks their hooves seem to be in better condition and both are displaying more youthful attitudes. So far, I'd say the product has successfully targeted and addressed senior needs.
